      Not until you've finished those Maltesers.

              I've just seen a traumatic advert

              The neighbourhood where I work has a shit-ton of movie/TV productions going on. Streets are often lined with NYC taxis and generic Metropolitan Police cars behind neon LES-branded traffic cones.

              Other common sights: "Crew Base", "Crew Parking" and "Lunch #1" signs in odd locations out in the burbs.

                  Hold My Baby, Man

                  Now, I am not having a go at Taco bell here, for having such a thing as rolled chicken tacos, which look fairly Taco Bellish. Nor am I having a go at the sauce or the baby.

                  No. I am having a go at the hipster cunt who orders our "hero" to "Hold my baby, man".

                  I will drop-kick your fucking head for 3 points at Murrayfield you passive aggressive little shit. Hold your own fucking baby, I'M EATING.

                    There is no way I could possibly condone slapping a child but I'm afraid I'd be tempted by the annoying little git in that Emirates ad with Jennifer Aniston.

                    "Can I have some cawwot juice?" FUCK OFF!

                      Yeah, that twunt looks to be the archetypal 'you-thought-he-was-the-good-guy-but-actually-he's-the-psychotic-asshole' that seems to appear in every Hollywood drama made over the past two decades.

                      Not only that, but the other dummy's dripping sauce on the baby's head.

                        Again, not traumatic, but you do wonder how a company with the might of Amazon came to employ week one Apprentice candidates to come up with their Amazon Alexa advert.

                        Starts off with some moody panning of said appliance with some quotes suggesting we're looking at the future arrived early, then segues into faceless loner dog owner adding arsebiscuits and buttonholes to his shopping list, cueing a playlist, and having the requests repeated verbatim by Alexa. Alexa sounds like she might be Stephen Hawking's sister.

                        A mate of mine bought one about a month ago, banged on about it for a week, and hasn't mentioned it since. 'Alexa, gather dust'.

                          Annoying child's father seems to be working up a bit of a boner when he clocks Jennifer, then his wife appears and he loses the horn.
                          Like that's not weird enough, this is an airline ad, not one for Durex lube, Jennifer claims it's a pity their journey doesn't last longer because that's exactly what you're thinking halfway through a long-haul flight.

                            Stella Artois, "Be Legacy"
                            At the risk of sounding like a post-watershed Ed Reardon, what the fucking fuck is that supposed to mean? I don't know why it annoys me so much but it does. But that's not the end of it. I just did a Google search to see how long it's been around and found this abomination from their PR division from when the campaign was launched:

                            'Be Legacy’ launch marked with new advertising campaign that heroes prominent figures from the history of Stella Artois

                            'heroes'??? As a fucking verb??? These people are evil, no two ways about it. They're part of the continuum that gives us Trump.

                              I'm reminded more of a female 'Hal', personally.

                              I simply cannot see either the need for, or the appeal of, these things.

                                  I can't think why else he'd being doing adverts for a small Swedish hotel

                                      Ads that urge viewers to 'discover the story' behind them. Look, you're flogging a product. I don't want to know the 'story'. If I want or need something, I'll just go and get it without some advertising arse plonking it in the context of a 'story' to make the shit they're selling look meaningful.

                                      Cuh.

                                        Or cheaping out on the media purchasing by running a 15-second teaser spot that ends with "See what happened next at www...". Yeah, that's just what I'm going to do. Maybe if it looked like a mini soap opera like that coffee commercial back in the '80s, but not for Kraft peanut butter or whatever.

                                          Isn't he paying a small collection of ex-wives or something? I get the small hotel / Fawlty connection, but that really sucked.

                                              Just seen an advert for clothes company Pretty Little Thing. It appears nobody thought that having women wearing short dresses while hanging around on darkened streets might look a bit prostitutey.

                                                I don't get the current ebay advert. Do these people (assuming father and son given that they look alike) live together? If to why does one have a broken blind, and why do they have breakfast apart? Do they live in separate apartments? But that doesn't make any sense given the final shot shows a house corridor rather than a communal one.

                                                And what language was it dubbed from?

                                                  Fucking despicable.

                                                    Ah.
                                                    I thought it was for Budweiser. Maybe it's a double-dunter, if not there's some well-cheeky product placement going on there.
                                                    She can fack aff either way

                                                    Anyway, expecting some absolutely blindingly hackneyed perfume ads to be on heavy rotation right up to the last minute. I can't decide whether those models whose eyes are so far apart they're in different postcodes are beautiful or badly deformed.
